Today's the day!

Morning one and all. Well, after quite a long and stressful wait its arrived. First NHS Rhuemy appt. You have all prepared me well for this with your knowledge and support so I'm going with an open mind, not expecting a miracle cure and ready for the work to begin (if any). I really do just want to know what I am dealing with so that the medics can do their bit and I will be informed what I can do to help myself.

Had my CT chest/abdomen with contrast yesterday - no problems. Apart from Brendan (the Radiologit) went to help me up off the scanner, cracked my funny bone on the bed and he laughed! Cheeky b. They were absolutely brilliant. Not had the DEXA yet, cracked another rib last week, coughing so hope that soon comes through as I don't want to remain on high dose steroids much longer.

Well, wish me luck and I will report back either with a wet hanky or hopefully a beaming smile. All take care. Babs x
